Google: 43% of traffic
Yahoo: 20% of traffic
Google: 34.7 %
Yahoo: 29.8 %
This is a huge discrepancy considering that this is a site with several million unique visitors per month.
Is anyone else getting percentage of traffic discrepancies today like this? Is Yahoo rolling out more Inktomi as they slowly phase out Google?
I am in Houston Texas
I would like to see some actual competition between Yahoo!, Google and MSN, instead of the 80% market share that Google enjoys.
Hopefully, a year from now there will be three major databases to optimize for and choose from. Then our search engine rankings will not rely totally upon what one search engine wants to do.
Personally, since this last G update, I wish Yahoo would hurry up and begin challenging Google's dominance.
Well, it's Feb 7... about 10PM PST, and, for the record, whatever is on Yahoo right now is definitely not the current Google www results, not AllTheWeb, not AltaVista, and not Inktomi.
PS... Just figured it out. What I'm seeing right now is pre-Florida Google results.
Beyond the normal yahoo cookies I have one called.
Here are the contents of the cookie.
Not sure if this is what enables me to get the new yahoo, but I won't be deleting the cookies on this machine until Yahoo switches.
